MaPSA-Antipolo Online Family Retreat for Students and Parents/ Guardians

An annual retreat is a major opportunity in every student’s life in a Catholic institution. A retreat refreshes, revitalizes and gives opportunity to spend more time in prayer and contemplation. It rekindles and deepens one’s relationship with God. One may take this opportunity to more clearly hear God’s call and to seek God’s healing grace and thereby, attain a degree of spiritual renewal. The purpose of a spiritual retreat, as an addition to daily spiritual activities, is to temporarily leave behind the usual distractions we all face, to allow relaxation and of an inner change to occur- the conversion of heart that is critical to deepening faith. The catholic encyclopedia describes the necessity of such retreats: “In the fever and agitation of modern life, the need of meditation and spiritual repose impresses itself on Christian souls who desire to reflect on their eternal destiny, and direct their lives in this world towards God.”

Proper observance of the following is highly expected at the three-day retreat
